What People Are Saying

I have been fortunate to work with Jo in both a personal coaching and facilitation capacity. Jo has played a critical role in my career journey and I believe I’m a confident authentic leader as a result of her contribution to my leadership growth. Her passion to install executives with a greater level of confidence continues to manifest in some amazing outcomes.  I have valued Jo’s deep and present listening skills, as often as a CEO it is difficult to discuss situations within the realm of the business.  She has pushed me to lean into situations outside my comfort zone enabling me to be the best version of myself by making good choices.  Without a doubt I would not have achieved my current role without her continued belief, guidance and valuable coaching advice.

Nadine Tereora - Former CEO Fidelity Life, Auckland

Jo has helped me out a number of times by providing mentorship and support over the years. This support gave me clarity and direction for my career and also guidance and insight in how to be a more effective leader.  She at times has also coached my teams which helped to build a close knit team, increase engagement and we have gone on to deliver incredible results.  Jo has a natural affinity to mentor people to help them achieve their goals, both personal and professional.

Richard Raj - Frucor Beverages, Auckland

In my time working for and with Jo, I have found her to be a leadership inspiration. A true example of how a leader should be. As an up and coming leader, I learned bucket loads from her. Jo helped me realise that it is ok to think outside the square and to do things differently. She also helped me grow my understanding of the value of strong relationships. If you are looking for a mentor or executive coach, I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly than Jo.
